Wednesday Memo: Mammoth bone found … Oops, wrong car! … Arrest in North Bend attack

National Weather Service forecast

Another mammoth discovery … OK, it’s not a tusk, but what appears to be a Columbian mammoth bone was unearthed by a construction crew near Clarkston in far Eastern Washington last week. (Far east as in Asotin County on the border with Idaho, near Lewiston.) A mammoth tusk was found at a construction site at South Lake Union a short time ago. Did you know a mammoth is Washington’s official fossil? Neither did we.

Well it looked like his car … A Yakima man put his laptop and college papers in his Kia Optima Monday night, ran into a supermarket Starbucks, only to come out to see his car being driven away. It wasn’t his car, of course, it was someone else’s. It just looked like his. Stay tuned to see if his goods turn up. The Yakima Herald-Republic has the story.

Arrest in stabbing, sexual assault at North Bend pizzeria. A 41-year-old man is in jail in connection with the incident. Terrible case, that one.

OK, he was sacked, but don’t feel too bad for him: WSU fired men’s basketball coach Ken Bone yesterday, but hey, he walks away with $1.7 million. Now that’s severance pay, eh?

The fatal helicopter crash: You can find a complete report on the tragic event starting here.
